Gikuyu ni Kioigire: A First Course in Kikuyu. 3: Essays, Texts, and Glossaries. Linguistic and Cultural Reference Materials.
Bennett, Patrick R.; And Others
The third in a series of three volumes comprising a college-level course in Kikuyu, a Bantu language, this document contains four essays on the structure of the Kikuyu language, transcripts of taped paradigms, nine conversations, sixteen texts, and a glossary. The four essays, which are intended to supplement grammatical explanations, cover the phonology of Kikuyu, the noun class system, the verbal system, and clause structures. The paradigm transcripts and conversations are intended for review, reference, or reinforcement. The conversations include exercises and notes, and they are graded according to complexity. The 16 texts, intended for use in place of home exercises after Unit 13 of the longer or combined course, form the basis of class discussion and activities. The glossary contains all vocabulary items used in the two sets of course units and the essays, paradigms, conversations, and texts, as well as some additional useful terms. (MSE)
